Do I feel old...had to read most of the posts here to even understand what you all were talking about...I didn't like it when Jerry started doing more in the late 70s with 'effects' and such, so assume I would have the same response to those efforts of Bob. I have not listened to a single show post 82 except for the one of Dire (87, La Bamba) and one of 93 (someone here recommended).

Can one of you direct me to a song in 94 or 95 that is 'full' of this approach by Bob so I can see what I have missed?

Thanks.

listen at your peril WT - i cant even think of one to tell you to listen to - i think i wiped my mind of it in those two years (god i can't stand them). glad you are still cool with the MSG 87 show.

No real midi's on that 87 puppy - just pure rock and roll for the most part.

I have and use and like wah wah, fuzz, reverb and assorted other effects for my guitar. I can't say I am against the midi, seeing I do like effects, but I don't see the point in making the guitar sound like another musical instument. I guess that's why I kind of don't get past 1979 much.

Absolutely the boys had a right to explore whatever musical nuances additions, subtractions they wanted--they are the artists what make that good stuff!...(Keith even 'experimented' with some odd carnival organ type sounds at some shows), but in all, the MIDI sound left me feeling cold.

I loved the sound of Jerry's guitar, and didn't care to hear it sounding like a trumpet, or clarinet, or any other horned instrument...it also sounded rather cheesy to me, in an overall bad 80's kind of way.

Didn't like Brent's bells and whistles either, when he was so damn good at playing the sweeping, straight-on blues organ type sound to compliment songs like Rooster and Passenger...I like the sound of the band best when they were less reliant on toys and more about straight ahead jamming.

as always--a matter of personal taste.
